These are the only shots I have of my rig...

I haven't even jumped it yet because of this whole being in Afghanistan madness.



Nice!

Clean, simple, looks good.

Be safe and get back so you can wear it out!

An Instructors first concern is student safety.
So, start being safe, first!!!

I hope you put canopies inside before jumping :)


Haha!! I knew there was something else I was meaning to do....

ChutingStar is gonna have the whole rig ready for me by the time I get home.

I ordered a Pilot 168, Smart 160 and Cypres2 to fill it out nicely. :D

Here's mine. Got it from the classifieds here.
Previous owner shipped it for inspection.
S&TA, also a rigger, did pre-purchase inspection and 180day repack on it.
Got my A license stamp on 9 Mar ( Safety Day ) and was able to make my first A licensed jump, on my first rig, on my first Safety Day.

Not as colorful as many of the ones I see here, but I'm thrilled to have my own gear to use instead of student rigs.
The harness fits well and the canopies are a decent size for me.

Also got an Alti-Track, gear bag and stand in the deal as well.
Canopies must all be female. If I treat mine good, she gives me a good ride. If I slap her in the bag, she will dump me like a turd.

Courtesy of PRE7117, love that line.

I had that configuration. You CAN do it but it was tight. The thing felt like a brick on my back and never really looked right. I changed to an Optimum 160. That works so much better. My suggestion is to either get the Optimum or go with a larger sized reserve container.

To be fair, my PDR was an older one. I think it was in the first year or so that they started using microline instead of Dacron. I don't know this but I suspect that this one packed a little bit bigger than the current PDRs.

Anyone here have a W11 with a PDR 160 in it?? I want to see how the reserve fits before I buy it .. Is it loose around the risers?!? Thanks!!
